Seven Pakistan rangers killed, one trooper injured after BSF foils infiltration bid in Kashmir

Seven Pakistan rangers were killed after an infiltration bid was foiled at Hiranagar in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday, PTI reported on Friday.

Though details are still sketchy, ANI quoted the Border Security Force (BSF) official as saying that it was a befitting reply to a sniper attack carried out by Pakistani rangers at 9.35 am on Friday morning. BSF too launched an offensive.

According to ANI, BSF also declared that during the fighting, one militant and seven Pakistani rangers were shot dead. "The rangers reportedly injured a BSF trooper as well. His condition is still critical," it added.

Seeking to suggest that the killings had been corroborated by Pakistani media, the BSF said "source input" claimed that a media organisation in that country was running a news item about death of 5 Rangers.

This firing from Pakistan was effectively retaliated and  that has claimed the casualties of Pakistani forces, the release said.
